Windows 7: Sleep & Hibernation modes

On the basis of the configured power option the computer does go to sleep as programmed but there follows a succession of wake and sleep periods at perhaps some 10 -15 minute intervals.
I have also run just about every possible powercfg command at the elevated command prompt in endeavours to locate the source of the problem experienced. The only device which has the power management tab enabled is my wireless mouse. This has been removed and substituted with a plain vanilla PS2 mouse but this makes no difference.
Did you disable the "Allow Wake Timers" option in the Control/Panel/Power Options GUI?

I am beginning to think that install repair is, for want of any alternative should be the next step athough the system file check revealed no corrupted files. However I hesitate because this might bring in train prpblems of another nature - a case of jumping out of the frying pan into the fire

A repair install should not create any new problems. If it does, you know you have a much bigger issue, which should be addressed first.

Wake after 15 minutes automatically

I found this in another forum:

"I have the same problem on more than one pc. But I think a norrowed it down:
my guess is, that it has something to do with Media Center, but I found no
Task (and no BIOS setting, device, ...) that could explain the RTC wake up.

Actually there is a "brutal" way to disable all wake events, I found that in
two Microsoft sources:

Search the registry for bd3b718a-0680-4d9d-8ab2-e1d2b4ac806d

You find the "Allow wake on timer" settings for all powerplans. Replace
(also in subfolders) the value 0x000000001 with 0x000000000. You could set
it seperatly, you can see there are settings for AC / DC (battery)."

Maybe this can help you.
